alcohol leadership award

WASHINGTON, DC – Today, the Foundation for Advancing Alcohol Responsibility (Responsibility.org), a national not-for-profit organization funded by distillers dedicated to fighting drunk driving and underage drinking, recognized Representative Daniel Zolnikov (R-MT, District 45) with its 2015 Leadership Award.

Representative Zolnikov sponsored House Bill 412, which was enacted into law and supported by Responsibility.org. House Bill 412 provides immunity when a minor seeks treatment for an emergency drug or alcohol overdose for themselves or another person.

Zolnikov stated “I would like to thank the bi-partisan support this legislation received by Montana’s legislature, where it was easily recognized by most groups that saving lives is a more important priority than writing a ticket.” The only opposition came from the Montana County Attorney Association.
